me too. there's a couple of levels that are fun, but are crap for raking in coins with, so i keep going back to the same coin-making levels so that i can buy stuff. playing for coins that way is kinda boring. :P

if you get G4 where you are, Terranigma, they've had live coverage of E3 for the past couple years now IIRC, and they are promising coverage of the Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft conferences this year too. considering their E3 2008 site still has video of those conferences up, even if you aren't able to see them live I'm sure G4TV.com will have them up for you/us to watch afterward. :)

@Chicken Brutus: buying the music once gets you the basic music that starts when the level starts. have you ever played through a level so long that the music changes, though? it gets a little bit fuller or richer, and i believe the song is a little longer because you're adding that on; that's what you're paying for when you buy it again.

there, fixed that for you. always do your own research, do not trust Wikipedia on its own (at least check the article's references for yourself and read their 'sources' first). :)

and warioswoods is right; if you've got proof some of those games indeed are not coming, or you've done extensive searches on your own and cannot find proof of their eventual release anyway, remove it and try to start up a discussion on the Talk page. you may not end up getting any answers, and you may just end up fending off a lot of (misinformed) people who try to edit those games back into the list, but it's your baby, dude.

good times, man. if you're interested, i worked out some trade routes for when you get halfway through the game and upgrading your characters' equipment starts to eat away at your resources. trading is also important to get certain items to be sold in your castle (by trading Butterfly Wings, the Butterfly Robe becomes available for purchase, for example) once you recruit the character who sells weapons and armor (he's an automatic recruit, so don't worry about missing him :3).

@Josh: that sucks; hopefully he was just playing up his new character. i was kinda excited to see him back, but he went too quick from 'saving us' from Orton to 'saving us' from ourselves. he's just no fun anymore. :(

but hey, at least you got to go to a show! :3

I've got both Ouendan games, but i haven't made it all the way through either of them on all difficulties yet (i got kinda bored in the middle of the second level of Ouendan 1, and I only just started Ouendan 2 the other day when I needed a break from Tierkreis). I also bought a copy of Tadashii Kanji Kakitori-Kun via eBay to help me with my kana writing skills, and had been looking to import a copy of Kanji Sonomama Rakubiki Jiten, but i kinda went broke and had to curb my eBaying for a while. ^^;;

now that is a game i haven't thought of in a long time and I wouldn't mind playing a new installment of. i would say i'd be happy to see the N64 version (Mega Man 64) show up on the VC, but i remember i specifically preferred the PSX version for some reason i can't recall at the moment. hmm.

Never had a GC? Well if you by chance have a Wii your in luck ;)

i do indeed, it's just a matter of finding the game available for sale/auction and having the spare cash on-hand to purchase it with. :3

@madgear: sorry, i just carry a torch for this game in particular because i've got so many negative memories of frustrating play sessions, especially when the next two NES TMNT games were so much more accessible in comparison (and fun, hello two-player action :D). i still think the first game is absolutely terrible, it ranks at the top of my personal list of the worst NES games i've ever played (is it sad that i had more fun playing Bible Adventures? i think so), and i would never recommend it to anyone who's never played it before (except, perhaps, a worst enemy, lol), but i can see where perhaps other people would not feel the same.

NSMB2 would be very welcome (especially if it's a revamped SMB2(US) as opposed to just a direct sequel to NSMB), but Super Princess Peach... eh, it was all right, but i don't think i'd get real worked up over it unless it had some extra gameplay features added or a better plot than the first.

have you tried Audacity? it's free, and it's a little bit daunting at first, but i use it to edit stuff into ringtones for my phone and whatnot. here's all the features it has to offer.

just so you know, it won't import or export AAC files; you'd have to modify them as MP3s and then convert them via iTunes or similar to put onto your DSi if that's what you wanted to do with them afterward. :)

It should be an option. Voice chat should be an option. Writing text should be an option. And there should be a mute option or block text option for those that don't want either. More people want communication than those that don't want it.

this. surely they could build in a way to opt out of communications entirely if they're going to go through the trouble of going back and putting them in at all (not that it'll probably ever happen).
